Many of you have already experienced the incredible benefits of Minga Foods' nutrient-packed teas and powder. Now you'll have the chance to directly impact communities in Ghana, as each tree planted will help improve the local environment, mitigate climate change, increase nutrition, and generate income for farmers and farming families.
We spoke to some of our dedicated growers about the role moringa has played in their lives. Akosua Krah (pictured above) responded, "I want to show everyone how great moringa is. The crop is helping me take care of my children, so that in the future they will also be able to care for me. Everyone in the community should be farming moringa. We will benefit from it, and our grandchildren will benefit as well."
Since 2012, we have planted more than 300,000 moringa trees in Ghana. But this year, we are upping the ante. Over the next several months, we are going to build the largest certified organic moringa farm in all of Africa. It's going to be a space where people can learn about organic, sustainable agriculture, and see for themselves how thoughtful farming practices benefit the soil and surrounding environment.
The space will provide employment opportunities as well as a low-cost nutritional food source for community members and their families. Earth Day only comes around once a year, but collectively we can make the effects last forever by consciously making decisions that are not only good for ourselves, but are also good for the Earth, and all the people i it, even those we don't come into contact with directly.
The next time you purchase a Minga Foods product, remember you are bringing us one tree closer to our Million Moringa goal!
